TOKYO (TR) – Tokyo Metropolitan Police have arrested a 43-year-old for allegedly molesting a teenage girl in Nerima Ward, reports Nippon News Network (June 2).

On the afternoon of April 18, Masaki Honda accosted the girl, a third-year high school student, on a street as she returned home and brought her to the first floor of building. He then forced her to touch the lower half of his body.

The results of a DNA analysis of bodily fluid found at the scene proved to be a match for the suspect.

Honda, who has been charged with indecent assault, partially denies the charges, saying that the incident took place but that it was consensual.

In accosting the girl, the suspect asked if she wanted to earn 10,000 yen, according to TV Asahi (June 2).
